The Candytuft Evergreen, 'Iberis sempervirens', has beautiful pure white flowers that cover this evergreen ground cover in the spring. Native to Europe, Candytuft has been used for centuries as an edging or border between lawns and taller plantings. The flat heads or clusters of stunning pure white, four-petaled flowers are on stems that are long enough to use in cut flower arrangements. The Candytufts bloom in early spring for 8 to 10 weeks. In mild climates they can bloom as early as November. The Evergreen Candytuft prefers full sun and average garden soil that is well drained. Do no let plants dry out or they will stop blooming. Plant in the spring, 2 to 4 weeks before the last average frost date or in late fall. Candytufts are excellent in pots, containers, rock gardens and as a small scale ground cover.
